Lisa Lampanelli Preps for Return of Stuffed
The production stars Lisa Lampanelli, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Eden Malyn, and Nikki Blonsky.
The cast of Lisa Lampanelli's play Stuffed offered a preview of the return engagement to the press today at the Friar's Club. Jackson Gay directs the production which features additional material by Ashley Austin Morris. Previews begin October 5, with opening night set for October 19 at the Westside Theatre.
Lampanelli stars alongside Nikki Blonsky, Marsha Stephanie Blake (Othello), and Eden Malyn (Bad Jews). The production has set design by Antje Ellermann, costume design by Jessica Ford, lighting design by Amith Chandrashaker, and sound design by Elisheba Ittoop.
The work is described as follows: "The four characters in Stuffed are a lifelong dieter, a bulimic, a confident overweight gal, and a permanent size-zero. The play features Lampanelli's famously irreverent voice, signature wit, and an extra-large scoop of razor-sharp insight into the crazy-making world of our relationships with food. With Lisa onstage, alongside a talented cast, Stuffed doesn't shy away from tough questions like: Is eating an ice cream sandwich in the shower as emotionally fulfilling as it sounds? When it comes to jeans, what's better — muffin top or camel toe? And, if Oprah, the most powerful person in the world, can't conquer her food issues, what can the rest of us do but laugh as we try?"
